These days, Web video isn't just for multimedia geeks. From news sites to indie film producers to major film studios, the Web is enabling filmmakers and broadcasters of all kinds to reach a vast audience. But producing quality video for delivery via the Web-movies that deliver the maximum punch per pixel—is no easy feat. This book helps you learn how to make your movies look great on the Web and gain access to an audience of millions.

Director and producer Thomas Luehrsen has been telling stories in film and video for over 15 years, including 10 years telling stories at teeny size—on CD-ROM and the Web. In Creating Web Video with Adobe Premiere, Luehrsen guides you through the entire process of creating video for the Web, from buying the right camera and microphone to deciphering the inner secrets of Web video compression. Along the way, he explains how to use the latest digital video equipment for seamless video capture, how to edit and compress movies with Adobe Premiere, and how to use Adobe GoLive to place them on Web pages and streaming servers. Read interviews with masters of Web video and take a guided tour of some of the best—and quirkiest—Web video being made today.
